Would you like to make a big difference to a local charity working and supporting young people aged from 6 to 18 years old but don’t have much time?
We might have the answer for you!
We’re looking for people with professional skills they’ve picked up in the workplace who can spare the time for 6 meetings a year. We’re setting up a Working Group on Adult Recruitment to facilitate increased and improved recruitment into Leader and Manager roles within Wolsey, which is one of the two Ipswich Scout Districts with Suffolk Scouts. If you have PR or sales skills, or knowledge of HR and recruitment, or experience of social media and communications, or have local business connections, we’d really like to hear from you.
Your professional expertise could guide our recruitment strategy and thus have a real impact on the lives of young people in Ipswich and the skills for life they acquire through Scouting
If you’d like to know more, please contact Alison Nichols, Deputy District Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org
One or more of:
Knowledge of volunteer recruitment and safeguarding
Knowledge of commercial recruitment and HR
Experience of sales
Good links with local business and media, or ability to establish these relationships
Project planning, management and evaluation (on a limited scale)
Contributing ideas and creative thinking
Ability to participate in a team and share decision making
Marketing and communication skills
Good interpersonal skills
You'll be able to build up knowledge of recruitment in the voluntary sector and learn a little about Scouting at the same time.
Wolsey District supports the Scouting activities of over 1000 children and adult volunteers, in fourteen Scout Groups, in west Ipswich and the surrounding villages. Scouting aims to provide Young People, aged 6 – 18, with skills for life through a varied and inspiring programme of activities.
